I like promoting opportunities to meet with our elected officials or candidates running for office – especially when the event is local and free to attend. Chris Van Hollen (our newest U.S. Senator) will be in Ellicott City on May 2nd. Here are some details about the event (from the Howard County Democratic Party Facebook Page):
Please join Howard County Democrats as we host Senator Chris Van Hollen on Tuesday, May 2, beginning at 7 p.m. at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 3604 Chatham Rd., Ellicott City, 21042. This will be a great opportunity to introduce new members to Howard County Democrats, learn about the Howard County Democratic Clubs and Alliances and hear from Senator Van Hollen. Invite your friends, colleagues and neighbors to attend.

I am not sure if I will be able to attend yet. I have a busy day on the road for work that day plus that is trivia night and my trivia team depends on me to help out with sports and political questions. So I am 50/50 on attending right now. Based on the two Facebook events I have seen for this event, it looks like it will be a very well attended event.
Will you be attending? If so, be sure to post a few photos on Facebook and/or Twitter.
